Really big hat tip to my dear friend Karena for today's insane vomit from the White House. Yesterday, while Ed Henry was sitting in for Wolf Blitzer on CNN's "The Situation Room," he had THIS conversation with Fran Townsend, Homeland Security Advisor:
HENRY: But now as 2006 ends, Osama bin Laden is still at large. Heading into 2007, how confident are you that he can be brought to justice this coming year?
TOWNSEND: Well, there's no question in my mind that he'll be brought to justice. The real question is whether or not it's going to be this year. I will tell you that I feel increasingly confident, you know, it was interesting. There's a recent poll and the American people said 71 percent of them were optimistic that we can protect the country.
And I think they've got reason to be optimistic. We've made a lot of progress. They see the progress we've made. We've disrupted plots. We've made reforms in our system, in our security system. So on bin Laden, do I think we are going to get him? I absolutely know we're going to get him.
The question is will it be this year. And I will tell you I think there's increased activity both the part of the CIA, JSOC and our partners, the Pakistanis.
HENRY: You know, going back to September 2001, the president said, dead or alive, we're going to get him. Still don't have him. I know you are saying there's successes on the war on terror, and there have been. That's a failure.
TOWNSEND: Well, I'm not sure -- it's a success that hasn't occurred yet. I don't know that I view that as a failure. (emphasis mine.)
Excuse me? Who does she think she's kidding? A success that hasn't occurred yet - like being a little bit pregnant?
Someone, please, wake up the Democrats and get these criminals and their lackeys out of office.
